Topic: "undeliverable mail" spam

Hello,


since roundabout 10 days my email account got spammed by "failure notice" emails.
my email address (here xxx@xxx.xxx) is used as "envelope-from" or "return-path".


funny thing is: I think every mail has this line:

X-Original-Helo: dc001.nefteteh.ru (iRedMail: http://www.iredmail.org/)
(with changing servers)

so, this spam is specialized to ired mail servers?

is there any way to stop that?



best,
achim

Re: "undeliverable mail" spam

Hi

I don't know which version you have (I have 0.5.1)
and I changed some amavisd.conf settings to:

after line:
$policy_bank{'ORIGINATING'} = {  # mail supposedly originating from our users
..
  virus_admin_maps => undef,
  spam_admin_maps  => undef,
...
$virus_admin = undef;

there might be some other settings which I don't know.
